We were looking at it about a month ago in a thread about using an HTPC to blend two projectors together. We gave up, as Nvidia does it with the Powerwall feature, and based on the descriptions and the higher priced card designs, it should work pretty darn well.
The video cards are out, we've just been waiting for the new drivers which enable the feature. But since I use ATIs in my systems, I wouldn't know if the new Nvidia drivers were out.
Well I hope they have not decided to get rid of it...
It would be much nicer to have the blend area instead of just two images side by side. Although, if you think about it, once it is set up it should look the same since you have the same drift and convergence problems with either one. It would just be easier to get it to setup with the blend area.
Friday I am going to borrow a second marque 8000 and give this thing a real test. I will post some pictures when I get it all setup.
Does anyone have a suggestion on weather to put the projectors both in the center of the screen or centered on their respective screen sections? I tend to think that the centering on their sections makes more since since they can then use more raster and it's easier to setup (less focusing issues).
Try it with a couple of PC monitors first and figure out how much blend room you think you'll need. Once that's done, you'd want to do what you thought- center them on their respective sections, as if there were two screens overlapping each other.
